PSG vs Marseille Match Preview and Insights
PSG and Marseille share an intense rivalry and the meetings between the two clubs have been known as the Le Classique. First played in 1971, the game is seen as an equivalent to the El Clasico – between Real Madrid and Barcelona – in Spanish football. The rivalry stems from the two clubs enjoyed a lot of success in France and Europe. Both enjoy a lot of fan following and the Le Classique is often followed from different parts of the world. In recent years, the competition has had seen a reduction in the success for Marseille, as a substantial amount of investment into the PSG squad has thrown off the balance.
There have been more than 95 Le Classique matches since the first meeting in 1971. For long periods, there was little to separate between the two teams. The financial position of both clubs was almost similar during the 1990s and 2000s. However, the entry of Middle East owners at PSG changed the dynamics. As a result of the dominant results since 2010, PSG have gained an upper hand in the fixture. Even though there has been a string of wins for PSG, Marseille did break the run with a narrow 1-0 win back in September. It is a surprise that almost every meeting between PSG and Marseille has taken place in domestic competitions like Ligue 1 and Coupe de France. There have been no meetings between the two clubs in European competitions.
PSG have been very dominant when it comes to the Le Classique. The club has the strength in depth to overcome any domestic opponent. The club has been the disputed King of French football over the last decade. It is unlikely that PSG will be thrown out of this position anytime soon. The biggest issue for PSG has been getting success in the European competitions. Following their extended period of dominance in Ligue 1, it is difficult to look past PSG for a winner when it comes to the most matches.
Marseille have had an indifferent few years under different managers, but the arrival of Andre Villas-Boas has brought about a substantial shift. The club are once again looking towards the top and a second place finish in the 2019-20 campaign brought about a huge sigh of relief, as it was the best finish for Marseille since the 2012-13 season. The tactics of Villas-Boas might end up wearing out the players, but it has produced results. The former Chelsea and Tottenham manager was also successful in claiming an away win over at the Parc des Princes in 2020.
